ell the talented twin duo are heading across the Atlantic Ocean….

To my part of the world to compete on the North American circuit for a couple months. After quite the impressive summer for the two Belgian-borns, Olivier and Nicola will make the trip to the promised land to make their presence known. Get ready ladies, these boys are young and talented, so sure to make an impression.

As it is planned at the moment, the boys will attend Harrisburg (CSI2*-W), Lexington (CSI3*-W), Washington (CSI4*-W) and finish up at the Royal Winter fair in Toronto, Canada (CSI4*-W).

Olivier will not be bring his Olympic mount, Cabrio, but instead Chicago and Denver. Nicola will bring Vadetta, Diebrich and Cortez.

Olivier, ranked 124th in the world, is no doubt still feeling the buzz from his $1 Million win at Spruce Meadows last month. Olivier became the youngest to ever win the CN International Grand Prix. Don’t discount Nicola however, ranked 82nd in the world, he may not have brought home over a quarter of a million dollars last month but he ranks higher then his brother on the FEI’s International rankings.

However way you want to look at it, these boys are both very talented and set to make a mark on the East Coast starting next week. Surely they intend to make Papa proud!!
